We had the good fortune of connecting with Lila Rose and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lila, how does your business help the community?
The cannabis assisted Nature Tantra Experience is a one of a kind experience which supports people in reconnecting to their deepest purpose and inner calling. When we return to our most authentic selves, we not only experience more personal joy and aliveness, but this additionally and inevitably reflects the way in which we interact with our community and world at large. By reconnecting the human heart to the greatness of being alive, we in turn reconnect to the Earth and all of the inhabitants we share this planet with.
At a time when climate change and other environmental devastations are threatening our home and all of the life it supports, we need this work more than ever if we want to survive, let alone thrive. The Nature Therapy Experience reminds us of this intricately profound web of life we are a part of. The healing is two fold: when we invite our hearts back into a state of profound and all encompassing love, we begin to care for and tend to ourselves and our planet.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The Nature Therapy Experience merges cannabis ceremony, nature therapy, and tantric meditation practices. Although the popularity of plant medicine is on the rise, cannabis tends to have a reputation for being either purely recreational or medicinal. The way I guide clients to intentionally work with cannabis allows for an easily integrated healing experience in one on one, couples or group experiences. I got to this unusual place after serious burnout from being a full time performer in the music industry. I came back from my last European tour with a high level of anxiety, and a realization that I had been living with on and off again depression. I didn’t feel like I was living my life to the fullest, and I felt like I had so much more to give, to become, and to experience. I direly needed a life reset. After two years of immersing myself in nature largely in solitude, my own life went through what I now call the nature tantra experience. Due to this process, I have literally turned my life around: I have a joyful vibrance reminiscent of my childhood, I found my life partner, I feel more aligned with my purpose than ever before, I have a new sense of community, and deeper friendships than ever before. Additionally I wrote the best album of my life (coming soon). Because I allowed myself to go through this program, I now get to play outside, helping humans reconnect with themselves, with the earth and animals… this is a DREAM!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Seeing as I’m most interested in nature, I would focus on taking them on scenic hikes, beach visits, paddle boarding, ecstatic dance on Sundays at Venice beach, and of course dining at my favorite vegan restaurants including Pura Vita, Sage, Sun Cafe and Kitchen Mouse. Lastly, I would be sure to take them on a Nature Tantra journey 😉

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to our planet, and to all of the animals we share this planet with.
